Regression causing Freeze in KWin 4.9.1

Hi KDE Packagers,
unfortunately we have introduced a nasty regression while fixing a bug in KWin
for 4.9.1 . With the "wrong" settings and the wrong set of open windows
distributed over multiple desktops this can result in a freeze.
A freeze in KWin means that the compositor stops, that is the user has no
chance to recover from this state unless he knows how to switch to a tty.
In case you have not yet pushed out updates for kde-workspace I would kindly
ask you to hold them off till we have a working and regression free fix. A
patch is already attached to the bug, but I want to give it more time for
As an alternative you could also revert git commit
567f8cc50082ce5307aa7163fdf3176446a1df5a which introduced the regression.
I will keep you informed when the patch has been committed to the branch.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
